    It's missing 2 valves mate.
    Have you polished it soooo much that you've worn right through the paint?
    Stunning piece of kit Pablo a real one off and something to be proud of very

    167 kg it's not a Superlight it's a Ultralight.
    It's carbon turkey for me then but.......
    I'd lay good money that your leathers are bigger than mine and that you weigh more than me mate.

    Pablo,
    I had seen the ST3 motor swap, but your latest version with the forks and bodywork is very, very nice.
    I can't wait to see it all painted and finished.

    Howdo Darren,

    Initially I thought the system was by Silmoto, however I've recently found out it's one of the original Scorpion systems. I got it ages ago from Steve Wynne (Sports Motorcycles), Mark Hill (MHP) altered the system to fit the ST3 heads (Made a superb job!)

    Cheers Pablo

    This post isn't to Pablo, rather it's directed at those of us with "REAL" Ducati Superbikes...
    You know the ones lads, the ones with 851 or 888 on them.

    Paul aka Pablo has more than once expressed an interest in my spare '91 851, from him I'd consider a part X but he's only got his SL/ST3 Special or some GSSSSSSRRRRRRXXXXX 1000 piece of Jap crap.
    However he has got a very nice 900SS Bevel in his garage, hold up that's out of the question it's already mine.

    Steve R ...aka Ogri, Grandad, Mr R, Ducati Menace, Dennis the Menace, Here comes Noisy, Senile old fool, I've lost count of the nicknames that I've picked up over the years.

    But Grandad Spinnaker you don't have an 851(That's roadworthy) or an 888 you have a 916!!!??? So does that mean it's not a 'real Superbike or real Ducati' Realise your old and often forget things - like washing and stuff!! But that's expected at your age!!

    I'm more than happy to give you a 2 Valve advantage!! Because with your physical areodynamics I'm more that happy to remove the other 6valves!!!! Shippppppppppppmmmmate!!!!!

    More carbon pies for you!!!
